stay on taxes -- >> romney: right. >> what is the difference? >> romney: virtually everything he said about my tax plan was inaccurate. i'm not looking for a $5 trillion tax cut. what i said is i won't put in place a tax cut that adds to the deficit. that's part one. no economist can say mitt romney's plan adds $5 trillion when i say i will not add to the tax plan. number two i got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that's not always true, but just keep repeating it and ultimately hoping i will believe it. but that is not the case. i will not reduce the taxes paid by high-income americans. and number 3, i will not under any circumstances raise taxes on middle income families. i will lower the tax on middle income families. i saw a study that came out today that said that you are going to raise taxes by 3 to $4,000 on middle income families. throw all of these studies out there. but let's get to the bottom line. i want to bring the rates down at the same time lower deductions and exd exemptions and small business pace that individual rate. 54% of america
criticize him from the right. >> what would you like to say to mr. romney. >> obama: good luck tonight. >> no, really. >> obama: really. >> cenk: now, that was during the republican primaries when mitt romney was about to go to debates. but that could be say going into the debate with. we have michael shure and senior editor for the "new republic." i want to run this by you. it looks like romney is in a big load of trouble when it comes do the debates because he does not have much room to attack president obama. am i seeing this wrong? >> no, i think you're right. if i had one major strategic criticism of the romney campaign, they never migrated to the middle of the spectrum. ever since he had to move rights during the primaryies to offset challenges from newt gringrich and rick perry he maintained the base but it's mystifying that he never moved center. i agree with you the guy has boxed himself in on the far right political spectrum, and it's not the place you want to be with a month before the election day. >> cenk: i think moam made a good point the whole idea was that he was more
think you're right. if i had one major strategic criticism of the romney campaign, they never migrated to the middle of the spectrum. ever since he had to move rights during the primaryies to offset challenges from newt gringrich and rick perry he maintained the base but it's mystifying that he never moved center. i agree with you the guy has boxed himself in on the far right political spectrum, and it's not the place you want to be with a month before the election day. >> cenk: i think moam made a good point the whole idea was that he was more electable. >> newt gringrich forever is saying he's not the most electable because he's being something now that he will not be in the fall. to add to what moam is saying what becomes a problem for romney is he doesn't know which way to go. wherever he steps he's offending someone. it's kind of like the movie "dumb and dumber" when they got to the party finally but once at the party they couldn't stay there. whatever ruse they created to get where they're going but once they were there--i'd edits agree with--i would disagree with you on one part
would attack from the left. you say wait a minute. mitt romney is not a progressive, you're right. who cares. >> i'd repeal dodd frank. we're not going to get rid of all regulation. you have to have regulation. >> cenk: unfortunately, it worked. we'll tell you the results and we'll tell you how it worked on the show. then did president obama take it easy on romney because fox news has been charging him with being an angry black man because of this old clip. >> what is happening down in new orleans? where is your dollar? where is your money? it tells me that some how people in new orleans, they don't care about it as much. >> cenk: that is a really interesting debate. we'll have that on the show. and then toby zeigler from the "west wing"." >> it's not rocket science, it's labeled, but it takes a voter extra ten seconds to find it. >> cenk: how he would have done last night. all that and the elbow of the day. well somebody elbowed themselves. you might have been able to guess it. that's all on "the young turks." guess what time is it? you know it. you guessed that too. it's go time. >>
in their sails this morning right? they had just about given up on romney before last night. they needed -- they really needed romney to do well last night. otherwise, they would have just folded their tent. unfortunately, they got the boost last night that they needed. because romney did breathe new life into the campaign. now for the next week, right it's going to be oh, my god, oh, my god, we gotta bounce now. we didn't get a bounce out of paul ryan or tampa but now yeah romney proved he's up to the task. he showed that he's capable of holding his own against president obama and this is going to re-energize the republicans. just when we had them down for the count we let them back up. off the canvas. should never have done it. should never have let it happened. all right. more calls coming up and we'll talk to reporter from the hill, niles standage in the next segment here of the "full court press." >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >>and now to my point. that is a whole bunch of bunk! the powerful my stea

[ sighs ] >> exactly. before that debate, al gore was five points ahead of george burke, after the sigh, he stalled out and george bush still lost that election, but he closed in close enough for the supreme court to make the call at

shed that elite, sort of image. romney is the extreme version of john kerry, right? >> jamal: right. was there ever a chance, though that we could go for five more weeks without something shaking up this race? it seems to me mitt romney was going to do something, some external factor was going to happen, there was no way we were going to go five weeks on the trajectory that we were on. >> yes, and we have the jobs numbers coming out, and the jobs numbers that will come out in the first week of november. and the media likes to write the horse race stories, and justify their ability to spend the rest of these five weeks on the campaign trail. so somebody was going to write the romney is having a comeback story, and romney just gave them a reason to do so. >> jamal: okay. reid wilson thank you. check out "the hot line." thank you for being here. i am jamal simmons, and this is the "bill press show." >> announcer: radio meets television, the "bill press show." now on current tv. ♪ >>i jump out of my skin at people when i'm upset. they're doing this this corruption base
of prosecuting that right wing case against the mandate. but now we have romney saying things like the healthcare law that he passed in massachusetts demonstrates his compassion. and the right screams every time he says something like that. but it will be very interesting if he -- to see if he takes the debate as an opportunity to actually make a closer embrace of the healthcare. >> eliot: molly you're exactly right. he was for it before he was against it. dey, he finds behind this faux federalism. a state should pass it not the federal government which misses the question about whether this it is logical as a matter of healthcare policy. how does he square the circle? >> i have no idea. i don't know how he's going to have the debate tomorrow if he goes after quote-unquote obama care. how he doesn't expect barack obama to say how can you criticize me for something that was essentially yours? and what specifically is, this is what i think obama will do. what specifically are you offended by? and if romney -- he can
